Life as an Extreme Sport


I’m editing out an abstract for a conference proposal, and just got to the end of my paper… where I’d forgotten all about the mini, third person bio I had written as a challenge to myself. In the grand tradition of Goose, I crack myself up…

Kelly Hills, a senior in the program of Comparative History of Ideas at the University of Washington, recently realized that she needs more experience writing about herself in the third person, so is taking this opportunity to practice. She lives in one of the oddly trendy student neighborhoods of Seattle with her cats, Lunar and Toledo, and the occasional brave spider, all of whom are named Charlotte. She has noticed that the length of time she spends around her department chair directly relates to the length of her sentences, and finds this very amusing.

Department chair == John, the guy I’m PFing for this quarter, and basically spending simply too much time with.
